I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the battle of life, The hymn of the wounded, the beaten who died overwhelmed in the strife; Not the jubilant song of the victors for whom the resounding acclaim Of nations was lifted in chorus whose brows wore the chaplet of fame, But the hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart, Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desperate part.
But come, hear my words , for truly learning causes the mind to grow . For as I said before in declaring the ends of my words: Twofold is the truth I shall speak; for at one time there grew to be the one alone out of many, and at another time it separated so that there were many out of the one; fire and water and earth and boundless height of air, and baneful Strife apart from these, balancing each of them, and Love among them, their equal in length and breadth.
He tried to address the problem of change by saying that there is not one fundamental arche but four earth, water, air, and fire which generate all the material substances in nature by mixing together in various ways under the influence of forces he called Love and Strife.
You will know that wretched men are the cause of their own suffering, who neither see nor hear the good that is near them, and few are the ones who know how to secure release from their troubles. Such is the fate that harms their minds; like pebbles they are tossed about from one thing to another with cares unceasing. For the dread companion Strife harms them unawares, whom one must not walk behind, but withdraw from and flee.
Let us roll all our strength, and all Our sweetness, up into one ball: And tear our pleasures with rough Strife, Through the iron gates of life. Thus, though we cannot make our sun Stand still, yet we will make him run.Andrew Marvell
Let there be no Strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.abraham
Among Jews, there is an absence of drunkenness, always a fruitful source of domestic Strife and misconduct.hermann adler
Caution and conservatism are expected of old age; but when the young men of a nation are possessed of such a spirit, when they are afraid of the noise and Strife caused by the new applications of the truth, Heaven save the land! Its funeral bell has already rung.henry ward beecher
New England's dead. New England's dead!On every hill they lie;On every field of Strife, made redBy bloody victory.isaac mclellan
Fierce for the right, he bore his partIn Strife with many a valiant foe;But Laughter winged his polished dart,And kindness tempered every blow.william winter
Subhas Chandra Bose: Against the dawn of 1921, there now stood not merely a whole time politician but an emancipated soul – a soul reborn. Inspired by a taste of that fullness of life which brings man nearer to divinity and consciousness of a higher duty to his nation and to humanity, he plunged into the thick of the political Strife. His complete renunciation in the cause of the nation roused the affection and gratitude of his countrymen who spontaneously conferred on him the title of ‘Deshbandhu’ or ‘friend of the country’.chittaranjan das
The laws would not prevent each man from living according to his inclination, unless individuals harmed each other; for envy creates the beginning of Strife.Democritus
Love taught him shame; and shame, with love at Strife, Soon taught the sweet civilities of life.john dryden
Let there be no Strife, I pray thee, between thee and me.
A man of Strife and a man of contention.
Two aged men, that had been foes for life, Met by a grave, and wept and in those tears They washed away the memory of their Strife; Then wept again the loss of all those years.
From the Strife of tongues.
His voice no touch of harmony admits, Irregularly deep, and shrill by fits. The two extremes appear like man and wife Coupled together for the sake of Strife.Charles Churchill
Oh, better no doubt is a dinner of herbs, When season'd by love, which no rancour disturbs And sweeten'd by all that is sweetest in life Than turbot, bisque, ortolans, eaten in Strife! But if, out of humour, and hungry, alone A man should sit down to dinner, each one Of the dishes of which the cook chooses to spoil With a horrible mixture of garlic and oil, The chances are ten against one, I must own, He gets up as ill-tempered as when he sat down.Owen Meredith
With spots quadrangular of diamond form, Ensanguined hearts, clubs typical of Strife, And spades, the emblems of untimely graves.william cowper
The victories of Right Are born of Strife. There were no Day were there no Night, Nor, without dying, Life.
Where good and ill together blent, Wage an undying Strife.John Henry Newman
There is no advance without Strife.
There are those who regard this history of past Strife and exile as better forgotten. But, to use the phrase of Yeats , let us not casually reduce "that great past to a trouble of fools." For we need not feel the bitterness of the past to discover its meaning for the present and the future.
Still from the sire the son shall hear Of the stern Strife, and carnage drear, Of Flodden's fatal field, When shiver'd was fair Scotland's spear, And broken was her shield!walter scott
I strove with none, for none was worth my Strife; Nature I loved, and after Nature, Art; I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
